In contrast to Llobet´s output of just 14 original works, his transcriptions for guitar number 118, a considerable quantity of an extremely high standard. These were a huge influence on the two generations of guitarists following Llobet some of whom mercilessly and anonymously plundered and disfigured them for their own use!
Being also an accomplished pianist, Llobet was in a better position than any other of his contemporaries to transcribe the German Romantic Masters, as well as the piano music of Albéniz and Granados, among others.
Transcribed by Llobet mainly during his formative years these transcriptions are masterpieces which transcend their original setting.
In his early career, Segovia played many transcriptions of Llobet, eg Bach's Prélude in Dm, Sarabande, Bourrée, Gavotte.
This volume is highly recommended.
